023: OnlineSpySchool.com
The Atari 2600 game ET, ducks pulling off bank heists, Stephen King's The Dark Tower series, kiwis (the bird, not the fruit), the Dewey Decimal System and far too many secret agents; these are just a few of the ideas tackled in this week's crop of Click Pitch games by Trevor and Ben. If you've ever wanted a period piece about the great video game crash of the 80s, (and really, who hasn't thought about that at least once in their lives?), this is the episode for you!

031: Nightmare Fuel (featuring Sam Harkin of Vivid Geekcast)
Sam Harkin, of Vivid Geekcast and Super Hype Train, joins Trevor in this unprecedented second guest hosted episode in a row. He brings a real fun energy and they come up with a VR Croquet simulator with a horror edge, a Stardew Valley rip off and a VR Hibachi chef simulator.

Multiplayer backstabbing while diverting asteroids, skeleton jigsaw puzzles, avoiding the flu and images burning into your brain like an old CRT - just a few of the game mechanics in this week's episode. Join Ben and Trevor as they Click Pitch the night away!
022: For Whom The Gel Tolls
Ben and Trevor click the night away and invent a gel based multiplayer squad shooter with Minecraft building mechanics, an alien raising simulator as metaphor for raising a human child, a Moonlighting sequel which reveals an old nemesis, plus they fight off boars to gain access to the fountain of youth and much more!

021: Hand Occupation (featuring Jacob Janerka, creator of Paradigm)
Ben and Trevor are joined by Jacob Janerka this week, creator of the wonderfully funny Paradigm! In recognition of the success of his point and click adventure, as well as the fortuitous timing of Adventure Jam 2017, we decided to do our Adventure Game Design Done Quick segment, which we haven't done since episode 2! We each pitched a few ideas for small adventure games, and then spent the hour working through the story and puzzles. Keep your limbs inside the podcast at all times, it's quite a trip!

044: Maybe You're A Witch
Take flight as Ben and Trevor explore game ideas like a witch who must use her broom as an umbrella, a doctor struggling to delivery vital organs across a city, Weird Al fighting his way across heaven and hell, a Canadian organized crime simulator, plus strategies for what happens when you find yourself in an Olympic sized swimming pool being chased by a bear.
051: Butting Butts on a Butte
Ben and Trevor are back at it, imagining a horde shooter where your only method of communication is random noises, an open world sea monster game, a meringue based platformer, a sprawling adventure set in the world of board games, a competitive goat-based king of the mountain game, and a stealthy restaurant patron with high class tastes.
069: Noice!
Things are getting steamy in episode 69! Noice! Games this week include alien dictators, alternate universes with word searches instead of crosswords, theatre lighting in VR and a SWAT style game with a twist.
039: Owl Snacks
Trevor drags himself out of bed to help Ben play some Click Pitch. Things get a little weird with games featuring a jungle court with a baboon for a judge, a murder mystery at a Woodstock like concert and an owl hunting for snacks.
029: Monique the Leek (Bit Drizzle #2)
While Ben is in Canada we have a number of smaller episodes entitled "Bit Drizzle" ready for your listening pleasure. In this episode Ben and Trevor discuss a game featuring Twinder, sentient candy and they return to the world of anthropomorphic root vegetables that still don't like their leafy cousins.
011: Competitive Ornithology (featuring Pete Curulli)
Pete Curulli from the fantastic Game On Australia podcast joins Ben and Trevor this week in a cavalcade of potty humour and Star Wars jokes. We discover the new ARG for Blizzard's next Overwatch character reveal, re-invent the meaning of 'Season Pass', come up with a bird based MOBA, challenge theme park mascots to hold their pee and re-imagine The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as a fart based game made beautiful by Team Ico . Don't lose any of that StinkMass™!
064: Mirror Universe
Things get a little weird as Ben and Trevor delve into some more Click Pitch. Games include robot cows, neanderthal social networking and an attack that occurs within the mirror universe.
043: Sued by Disney
Get out your checkbooks as Ben and Trevor might be in a little legal trouble. We come up with two Disney themed Click Pitches, one based on Toy Story, the other based on Cars. Other games may include: a depressed garbage truck, a very scary carnival and a world where everyone wears thermal goggles.
027: AACK! (Bit Drizzle #1)
While Ben is in Canada we have a number of smaller episodes entitled, Bit Drizzle, ready for your listening pleasure. In this episode the boys talk about sentient baked goods, try to take down the fraternity system and tell a lovely story about a grandma and her grand-daughter.
066: Clock Fluid
A management game where you are tasked with building the best pub crawl route, an extreme couponing game with gameplay from both sides of the register, a world where the very concept of time relies on a mysterious fluid, and the much needed movie tie-ins for Cube, Key & Peele, Speed 3 and the entire oeuvre of Stephen King. All this and more from the minds of Ben and Trevor this week!
115: Special Tusk Force
A detective interrogating the maker (of the universe?), an adventure game based loosely on American Vandal, a Lost real time strategy set in an alternate universe and a new breed of heroes come together as a Special Tusk Force. Ben and Trevor laugh their way through these ideas and more.
018: All Hail the Octolord (featuring Daniel Mason from The S.O.A.P)
With the help of Daniel Mason from The S.O.A.P podcast, this week Ben and Trevor turned random words into an action adventure played in a world run by a giant totalitarian octopus, a saliva based collectible figurine game, a Lord of the Rings themed game played over the course of months with Pokemon Snap inspirations, turned The Wizard of Oz into a giant world-spanning RPG, and reimagined Cyberpunk: 2077 as a personal story experienced through the interface of an old school BBS.
020: Starch Wars (featuring Brendan White from The Hungry Gamers)
Vegetables abound this week as Ben and Trevor are joined by Brendan White from fellow AGPN podcast The Hungry Gamers. We imagine a world where root vegetables are made sentient and fight their leafy above ground foes, a chalky stegosaurus tracking down fare evaders and solving a mystery, a Transformers heist game, a grisly 19th century murder mystery starring Willem Dafoe and using the Death Stranding technology, and we re-imagine The Last Of Us as a new entry into the Universal Monsters canon.

058: What Do We Do Now?
In the second of their Global Game Jam themed episodes, Ben and Trevor take the theme 'What Do We Do Now' and use it in every Click Pitch this week! The result is a VR experience of vacuuming up Grandma's ashes, a dung beetle pushing a dung ball around a crowded city and the worst game of "Basketball" ever envisioned.
067: Fungi Cold Medina
Ben and Trevor return for an in-depth discussion of 4 made up games. Games include human sized pigs and pig sized humans set in an RPG, a rogue-like adventure beneath the waves and we discover the secret truth of how humanity evolved on Earth.
041: Willy Wonka and the Candy Caper
Stock up on candy because Halloween has come early! Ben and Trevor play some Click Pitch, and spew out some games where you need to escape captivity in a world where your spit can instantly rust metal, pull off a Halloween heist in a world where candy is money and beat your friends in a competitive bellhop game.
019: Banned in Australia
Alone again, Trevor and Ben get a little bit silly and invent a game with analogue breathing controls, a bachelor party planning simulator, a school-based stealth game set in the 80s, and took ideas for movie tie-ins from AGPN resulting in a new Scarface game with goblins, a horror game based (very loosely) on Night Shift, and finally a good Stargate SG-1 game. Click Pitch Constitution Blowing Stagger Spending Attach Lover Paging Approval Movie Tie-ins Debbie Does Dallas Scarface Birdman Stargate SG-1 Night Shift La La Land
035: Spike Strypp and Axyl Grease
Get your popcorn ready and switch off your mobile phones, cos Ben and Trevor are going to the movies. They warm up with some Click Pitch and then dive into some movie tie in games. The games include the children of Robin Hood and Little John on opposite sides of the law, a VR game based within the Anchorman universe and a creaky game about living as a house.
